The world-renowned exhibition, on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, will open at The Higgins Bedford on 21st June 2013, featuring 100 awe-inspiring images, from fascinating animal behaviour to breathtaking wild landscapes.
Now in its 48th year, the internationally-recognised annual competition has drawn over 48,000 entries from 98 countries, from amateur and professional photographers alike. The rigorous selection process has brought together judges from across the globe, to choose the best entries based on creativity, artistry and technical complexity.
Through the lens of wildlife photography, the exhibition captures the intrigue and beauty of our planet, giving us a glimpse of the natural world as it has never been seen before. The exhibition at The Higgins Bedford forms part of a tour to ten venues across the UK, as well as internationally.
